39 Anavar Cycle Results - Some of which Stump Bodybuilders
Anavar is one of the best bodybuilding drugs for those looking to cut body fat without losing precious muscle mass. But what else can you expect from Anavar results?
Anavar, which is also known by its drug name, Oxandrolone, or simply "var," is an anabolic steroid that's become wildly popular among bodybuilders. Searle Laboratories developed Anavar in the 1960s to help regrow muscle in patients with diseases that cause involuntary weight loss. But Searle discontinued production of Oxandrolone amid bad publicity from bodybuilders using the drug. Luckily, other companies have picked up the production and bodybuilders are still using this methylated steroid to experience insane strength increases, dissolve body fat and harden their physique. This being said, let's look at 39 incredible results that you can achieve through an Anavar cycle.
1. Accelerated fat loss (w/good diet)
The primary use for Anavar is cutting, meaning bodybuilders use var to help them lose weight quicker while also maintaining lean muscle mass. Now, it must be mentioned that one shouldn't run an Anavar cycle and expect it to provide dramatic results when they're 25% body fat and making donuts a staple of their diet. But if you're already in shape, eating clean and training hard, then you can expect some pretty impressive fat loss. Want evidence? A 2004 study revealed this drug can reduce total body fat even without exercise (1). However, don't expect var to have quite the fat-burning qualities of clenbuterol or ephedrine.
2. Muscle gains in women
It's often said that Anavar for women is like testosterone for men. Going further, women can use Oxandrolone to gain lean muscle, which is pretty interesting when you consider that it has little mass-building effects on guys. And with the proper Anavar dosage (5mg-20mg), women can also expect to use this drug without worrying about virilization (developing male sex characteristics).
3. No aromatizing side effects
One of the best Anavar results is actually something that doesn't happen: aromatization (estrogen conversion). As Wikipedia explains, because Oxandrolone doesn't aromatize, users don't have to worry about estrogen-related side effects like gynecomastia and water retention. So guys can cut fat and increase strength - all without needing a bra afterward.
4. Gains that stay
If you check out many Anavar reviews, you'll find that this drug offers very good long-term gains. Specifically the small lean muscle gains and impressive fat loss that's seen through Anavar results won't simply disappear within a few weeks as long as you run a good post-cycle therapy (PCT). Contrast this to other drugs like Dianabol and Anadrol, which don't usually deliver as keepable of gains.
Anavar side effects do exist...but they're overshadowed by the gains
5. Mild side effects - especially for an oral steroid
As mentioned in Point #3, this drug doesn't convert to estrogen, meaning there are fewer Anavar side effects to worry about (2). Var doesn't have much effect on blood pressure, nor does it cause as much harm to the liver at lower doses. The latter is very interesting since Oxandrolone is an oral steroid, most of which are hard on the liver. Some potential Anavar side effects that you should be aware of include mild suppression, acne, hair loss and nausea. Additionally, be aware that your lipid values will drop as well.
6. You'll break through plateaus
If you've reached a sticking point with your physique and can't seem to harden your muscles and/or drop the extra pounds, then Oxandrolone is perfect for giving you that extra boost. So anybody who's been in the gym for 7-10 years should definitely consider an Anavar cycle. However, don't run a cycle when you're 50 pounds overweight and looking for a magical way to overcome your Wendy's obsession.
7. Your diet will be greatly enhanced
Continuing on the last point, one great thing about Anavar is that it truly enhances the benefits you get from already eating clean and controlling calories. The end result will be your diet on, well, steroids.
8. Dry gains
Anavar results are certainly not geared towards mass building and crazy bulk. However, this doesn't mean that you can't experience some muscular gains thanks to Oxadrin. And when you do get these gains, they'll be dry since there's no water retention involved with Anavar. Contrast this to another oral steroid like Dianabol, where you can rapidly gain weight, but much of it goes away post-cycle due to water retention.
9. Hardened physique
Continuing off the last point, because the Anavar steroid is one that won't hold water, you can look forward to a very hardened, vascular physique after coming off a cycle.
10. Immediate gains
When you buy Anavar, know that you'll be getting some very fast results. That's because, like many oral steroids, this drug begins producing results within the first week or two. And with the right training, you should notice a change in your physique within a week.
11. Kickstarting a cycle
There are conflicting opinions on kickstarting a cycle, where you use a fast-acting drug to provide quick gains while waiting for a long-ester steroid (i.e. Testosterone Enanthate, Trenbolone, Nandrolone) to take full effect. But some bodybuilders still like to kickstart with an oral steroid to provide immediate strength gains and muscle hardening. And if you're interested in doing so, var is one of the best for the job.
12. Finishing a cycle
Speaking purely about Anavar for men, it's pretty rare for guys to run an Anavar only cycle. Instead, it's often introduced into other cycles at some point - especially towards the end. When used as a finisher, Oxandrolone can really clean up gains and make your physique look better while a long-ester testosterone is kicking in. Below you can see a very basic testosterone and Anavar cycle, where the latter is used as a finisher:

13. Good results in different forms
We've mentioned several times that you'll find Anavar for sale in pill form. However, you can also buy liquid Anavar, and it's often sold at research chemical sites, which, as the name implies, sell drugs for research purposes. Given that many bodybuilders are looking for Anavar for sale, they often purchase liquid Anavar to do their "research."
An Anavar cycle produces excellent results for Women
14. Off-season muscle gains for women
Earlier we touched on the subject of Anavar for women and how truly beneficial this drug can be to the fairer sex. It's also worth adding that ladies who are competitive bodybuilders or fitness competitors will truly appreciate using var in the offseason. The typical Anavar cycle for women consists of starting at 5mg-10mg (depending upon experience), then increasing/decreasing your Anavar dosage as needed.
15. An athletic performance boost for ladies
Adding to the Anavar women subject, this drug is great for female athletes looking for an edge. Considering the excellent strength and muscle gains that var provides to women, athletes will really appreciate it. Unfortunately, collegiate and professional sports leagues don't exactly endorse Anavar for women, so taking it is certainly risky for drug-tested athletes.
16. No support/PCT needed for women
For the ladies with questions on how to take Anavar, you'll be happy to know that you don't need to buy ancillaries like guys, nor do you need to run post-cycle therapy. The one thing that some women do, though, is taper down at the end of their cycle and eat extra clean in the two weeks following a cycle. This is simply done to lessen their body's shock when coming off the drug.
17. Gains on low doses for women
The typical Anavar cycle for women doesn't call for large doses - especially if you're a beginner. A good Anavar dosage for a new female user is between 5mg and 10mg per day, while most advanced ladies will top out at 15mg-20mg. Either way, there's not a lot of product being used here.
18. Small gains on high doses for guys
Switching back to Anavar for men, these cycles get very expensive for a guy who's mainly relying on var for gains; males will take upwards of 80mg-100mg for an Anavar only cycle. Given that guys stand to gain very little mass through a 6-week cycle, it's best to stack Var with testosterone (for bulking) or with other cutting compounds (for weight loss)...that is, unless you want to go broke trying to buy Anavar online.
19. PCT needed for guys
Because an Anavar cycle for men isn't very common and there aren't estrogen-related side effects, some bodybuilders consider it a joke when guys do use this drug on its own. Going further, they mistakenly believe that PCT isn't necessary after such a cycle. However, it's worth stressing that var is indeed a steroid and if you happen to run an Anavar only cycle, you should still consider PCT - especially at higher doses. So have some Clomid and HCG on hand for Anavar PCT.
20. Stronger bones
Okay, so maybe you're in your mid-20s, drink your milk and have very strong bones. But if you don't fit this description, then you can take comfort in knowing that one of the interesting Anavar results is better bones. This is little surprise too when you consider that one of Anavar's original uses was to treat osteoporosis.
21. Mild HPTA suppression
Unlike many steroids, Avanar causes relatively mild Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular Axis (HPTA) suppression at low doses, meaning your testosterone production remains fairly consistent. Even still, Anavar side effects hit everybody differently, meaning you should consider running some HCG to prevent HPTA shutdown.
22. The drug is in you for a very short time
The Anavar half life is 8 hours, which is one of the shortest of any steroid. That said, it won't be in your system long and, depending upon the cycle you're running, your Anavar dosage may consist of 2-3 times per day.
You'll get major strength and workout benefits from an Anavar cycle
23. A big strength increase
This point has been touched on before, but it's worth reiterating that Anavar pills can definitely provide a very good strength increase. Obviously this is dependent upon the individual and you're not going to break the world bench-press record just because you do an Anavar cycle. But a 12-week study did show that even older men on Anavar experienced significant increases in their chest press, leg press and lat pull-down exercises (3).
24. You get crazy pumps
Like most oral steroids, Anavar can give you some crazy pumps in certain muscle groups - sometimes so bad that you can't even finish a workout. Obviously this isn't one of the good Anavar results, so what you want to do is take some taurine if you're prone to harsh pumps.
25. Recover from workouts faster
God forbid you be afflicted by the I-can't-finish-my-workout pumps that we just discussed. If you're not, then you'll find that, like many steroids, Anavar is great for helping you recover quickly. Some Oxandrin users find themselves able to intensely work the same body parts multiple times a week.
26. It will land you in jail if you're caught
If you've ever asked yourself is Anavar legal, we can give you a pretty simple answer: no. Most countries, including the United States (Schedule III controlled substance), clearly state that Anavar is illegal for recreational use, and you can be put in jail if you're caught using it. But the fortunate thing is that most feds aren't concerned with kicking down everybody's door to find Anavar pills, nor are they hell bent on throwing somebody in jail for juicing to get a better beach body.
27. Reduction in abdominal fat
Assuming you've got a beer gut that makes Steven Seagal look like an IFBB pro, then an Anavar cycle isn't going to do a thing for you. However, if you're hoping to reduce your belly fat just a little, then var isn't a bad choice. And you'll be pleased to know that a 1995 study proved that Anavar can burn visceral fat in men with lower testosterone (4).
28. You'll bridge cycles
Bridging steroid cycles is a pretty controversial subject because doing so and not taking proper time off drugs can prevent your HPTA function from recovering. Nevertheless, var is a popular choice among serious bodybuilders who do bridge since it gives the body a break from androgenic compounds.
29. Your cardio won't be affected...except by insane pumps
Some cutting drugs like clenbuterol can have a negative impact on bodybuilders' cardio ability. Luckily, Oxandrolone isn't like this and you can do as much cardio as you feel like on var...that is, unless you're suffering from the severe muscle pumps that were discussed before. Calves can especially be sensitive to these crazy pumps that make cardio sessions hard to finish.
30. Big benefits when running with testosterone
It feels like it's been mentioned a dozen times so far that an Anavar only cycle is not highly popular among guys. So if you fall in line with the majority, then consider that you can get far more muscle/strength gains by using testosterone as a base to your cycle, then stacking Anavar with it.
31. You'll get renewed motivation
The best time to run an Anavar cycle is not when you're 40 pounds overweight and just learning how to use the hamstring curl machine, but rather when you've been training seriously and are slowing on gains. If you're lacking motivation due to lessened strength and muscle gains, then you can really kickstart things in the gym with var.
32. Truly defined muscles
A huge reason why people are so interested in the Anavar steroid is because it really cleans up muscle gains (no water retention) and adds definition. And this is excellent for guys who've added some mass, but want a more-defined look.
33. Get shredded for the beach
Sorry to bust out the cliché get-ripped-by-summer subject that's so common in the fitness industry. However, given var's ability to help you maintain muscle gains during cutting, this is a good drug for the beach-goers who need to drop some weight before summer without sacrificing lean muscle mass.
34. Heal injuries
Anavar pills are commonly used by people to heal certain injuries and wounds (5) faster than simple rest alone. Additionally, doctors sometimes prescribe Anavar and administer cortisone injections to help heal their patients. So if you've got an old weight-lifting or sports injury that still isn't quite right, consider some var.
35. Better Respiratory Function
A 1999 study proved that Anavar can reduce breathlessness in people afflicted with tetraplegia (6), which is paralysis that results in the partial or complete loss of using one's limbs and torso. Of course, endurance athletes might also find that they can improve respiratory function through the use of Anavar.
36. You'll add speed
Speed kills in sports and athletes are always looking to get faster. Oxandrolone isn't THE top drug of choice for those looking to increase sprinting speed - Winstrol is a more-popular pick (despite joint pain). However, those who don't get hit hard by crazy pumps can make some speed gains with var since it increases muscle performance without adding weight.
37. Great body recomposition...with a clean diet and hard work
Yes, we're going to reiterate one more time how important it is to not rely on drugs alone to better your physique. You can find plenty of Anavar reviews that preach how good it can be, but only when you're eating clean, training hard and have been working out for years. Assuming you put in a strong overall effort, then you're going to get great results with Anavar.
38. Your wallet will take a hit
When searching for Anavar for sale, you'll notice that the price can be relatively high - especially for experienced male steroid users. Given the price you'll see on Oxandrolone for sale, many guys question why they should buy such a mild steroid along with their bulking drugs. But based on the benefits that we've discussed - especially regarding Anavar for women - the case can also be made for shelling out the money.
39. Nice for testing the steroid waters
Not everybody jumps into steroid usage head-first with 500mg of weekly testosterone use. Assuming you're terrified of side effects and just looking for a strength increase along with minimum bulk, then Anavar is certainly a good drug to try. Even still, don't neglect to do your research and run a good PCT after an Anavar cycle.
